Still needing to dig a little deeper on this if this is true, Jeeps might  change in  the future...

I call BS. It's not a design flaw or straight axle issue. It's worn out components and or people lifting them improperly. SO these douche bags are going to cause the Wrangler to be turned into a POS. I am here to tell you the same thing happens to IFS vehicles. I have seen "Death Wobble" in Chevy trucks too.

In  my rigs case it was  piss poor equipment  from the OEM.

Ball joints  gone within 5K miles, drag link end shot at 6K miles

Tie rod flex
track bar flex

Yes cheap components  leading to  issues. Add to that the huge amount of less that  desirable  lift kit companies and lack of owner maintenance....  Jeep hypes  these rigs are the end all trail capable machine, but many of the components are  just plain cheap crap.

DW issues on my Solid axle fords too, Ball joints and track bar issues.  the early ones it was king pin issues... but it took 50K+ miles for that to happen.... my 17 JKURR needed help right out of the box.  Is a Law suite necessary?  I think that is going too far but then hw to you change the minds of the budgeteers at FCA/ Profit is king is it not in manufacturing?
